High Holiday Services


From Selichot to Simchat Torah, together we leave the ordinary to relive the birth of the world, reflected in the new selves that we birth during the High Holidays. Self-examination is a mighty task; that is why our tradition has us do the work together.


Please renew your membership or become a member now by visiting the Membership page.

High Holidays Plans for 5783!

5783/2022  We will be blessed with leadership by Rabbi Jack Shlachter, Hazzan Cindy Freedman, and members of the HaMakom community.

HaMakom's High Holiday services will be designed for the deepest possible onsite and online experience. Services, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation and held on Zoom, will be full of tradition, joyous, musical, and fulfilling. There is limited seating for Covid safety so there will be a maximum number of seating requests honored. Masks are required indoors.

If you have not yet renewed your HaMakom membership, please do so now

To Reserve Member Seats or
Purchase Tickets for Non-Members & Friends

FOR MEMBERS: With each individual or household membership, you receive High Holiday tickets. Due to limited seating on account of Covid, members MUST reserve seats for the services they wish to attend. Please email us at with your name, telephone number, and email address, specifying which services you wish to take part in and the names of the members of your household who require tickets for each.


TICKETS FOR NON-MEMBERS: If members wish to purchase tickets for friends or family or if you haven't yet decided to join HaMakom but would like to take part in High Holiday services, onsite or on Zoom, please email us at with your name, telephone number, and email address. Please specify the services you wish to attend and the names of the individuals for which each ticket is being purchased. We'd be grateful if you could contribute to sustaining HaMakom through this challenging time by making a donation; the suggested amount is $54 per service, but no one will be turned away on account of inability to pay.
